Price Transparency: What Is Next?


Meeting Description:
Today’s health care consumer presents new challenges for health care providers, as patients continue to be faced with an increased responsibility in health care costs, forcing them to “shop” services, which creates a need for meaningful and readily accessible price transparency. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Price Transparency Requirements, implemented on January 1, 2021, are presenting logistical challenges for providers.

This presentation focuses on reviewing the requirements, outlining the consequences of non-compliance, and explaining the four critical tasks for compliance. We will also discuss what is on the horizon as hospitals navigate challenges surrounding rational pricing methodologies and payer contract management concerns.
